Become a Civilian Instructor
Not everyone who wants to teach cadets is an officer in the Canadian Armed Forces. Civilian volunteers complement the knowledge and skill set of the Cadet Instructors Cadre. To ensure the safety of the cadets, civilian volunteers are required to undergo much the same screening as Cadet Instructors Cadre Officers.
Adults that want to get involved can:
- Assist with organizing and teaching on regular training nights
- Attend weekend Field Training Exercises and assist the staff
- Help coach and mentor the various teams and groups
- Speak to a group of cadets about a special skill that complements their training as appropriate
Let the Commanding Officer know if you have special skills. People with experience in first aid, rock-climbing, bush craft, survival, and so on are not always easy to find.
We are always looking for volunteers who can help run the activities that play such an important role in the lives of our young members. All kinds of people make up our volunteer staff, coming from a range of backgrounds and interests. If you have direct experience working with young people, or any other relevant skills you want to share, come talk to us. If you don’t know if you have a skill we need, but you just want to help, we still want to talk to you as we will train and support you at every stage.
